Electioneering and dirty tricks

Signs on trucks organised by political group, Advance Australia, have been appearing across the country. Western Australia Premier Mark McGowan was asked about one at the press conference today.

The ads appear to be a link to Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s accusation that Deputy Labor leader Richard Marles was a Manchurian candidate. The PM also attempted to link Labor leader Anthony Albanese to President Xi Jinping last November.

The Queensland Liberal National Party have been linked to a website which uses Anthony Albanese’s surname to redirect people to the Liberal Party website.
